We can only provide our life-changing service thanks to the people who support us. We aim to be as transparent as possible in how we raise funds and support our work. 

For every pound that's donated to us, we spend 89 pence on our life-changing one-to-one support. 

As a charity, we are regulated by the Charities Commission and have an annual audit by an independent firm of accountants.  Our latest audited accounts are available online on the Charities Commission website (search using our RCN 296454). 

We would like to thank the following organisations, foundations and individuals, and many others too numerous to mention, for their support during 2017-18. It is thanks to their investment that we have been able to help 13,400 children during that year. We also thank the many other individuals and organisations who support us but prefer to remain anonymous. 

With special thanks to

  • Paul and Sharon Pindar
  • Phil and Jenny Dudderidge
  • Andrew Franklin 

And many Jack's Club members and other individual donors.
